That is a Great Write up Ed!! I do that as well, I just don't have the time to write a blog or post much now days as my kids are taking all my time, racing is also taking a hit.

I just wanted to let everyone know that there are several alum chassis that I have made being tested and have been getting good feedback. I am going to do one more revision on them and tested before they will release exclusively through discountrcstore.com. They work extremely well on asphalt and real well on carpet. I also have shims in the works so you will not have to use the small shims to raise the arms. Just loosen the screws and install shim then tighten, super easy all in .25 increments will be soon.

Happy racing everyone

Ours is 3mm thick and weighing in the low 1400's.. that said, it's currently .1 faster than our aluminum T4 '14 on high traction carpet and very consistent overall... stay tuned..!

DVSSTRIKE gave me 1 for testing. I have been using mine on asphalt. Initial
tests show promising, but further refinements are ongoing prior to public release. We hope to have more info soon...l.;.

This was on a low grip asphalt track, that had lots of dust and pollen on it. As the grip came up, the car got better.

I hope so too. Every car they make has always caught my eye. No matter how many cars I try I always seem to make my way back to a schuie. They are the only company that seems to look at ease of maintenance.
